From the earliest settlements we have Spanish silver tableware, we have portraits of the captains that sailed the settlers to the colonies, we have items that were traded. All of these things help us to study our history. We will be using fine art and the crafts used to help us study how the county developed and evolved.

Each week we will work with our timeline, beginning with the early 1600’s and hopefully we will manage to get to current events and contemporary artists by June!

We will be using Howard Zinn’s book A People’s History of the United States and a we will be taking some field trips to some of the museums that will enhance our study art history/US history class.

Projects include sawing, stamping, piercing, folding, forging, cold connections and  more! Metalworking II students will refine their composition and design work using previous skills learned, such as wire work, cold connections, bezel work and mixed media work. Individuals can advance in technique on a case-by-case basis. As always workmanship and professional presentation is stressed. Students will complete this class with beautiful, original designs.
